    When Adolf Hitler wrote his now-famous (or infamous?) work, most of the world did not give it much notice, or take his ideas very seriously. This was in the mid 1920's, while he became chairman of the relatively small German Worker's Party (later the Nazi party). At that point in time, nobody would have guessed that this man would be leader of a powerful country. He wrote his 694-page tome both to express his unsavory ideals and to remake himself, though writing, into the "savior" of Germany that he was coming to believe that he was. The book contained an autobiography of his life, an analysis of World War I, a critique of Marxism, his ideas on Aryan supremacy, a critique of Communism, and his hatred of Jews. If World War II and the Holocaust had never happened, we might look at his hefty but badly-written work filled with illogical arguments, rambling attempts to hide uneducated thought, sudden outbursts of angry speech, and deliberate attempts to "rewrite" the past as humorous. However, somehow this crazed megalomaniac was able to bring himself to power and put into action his vague, in-concrete ideals in a series of unthinkable atrocities that still haunt us today. Today, this book is valuable for remembrance of that time, to give us a unique perspective on what life was like in World War II - era Germany, and to help us remember the value of keeping alert for people like Hitler, who may seem harmless but could represent untold danger to the world. A Well Trained Mind recommended resource. - Jess

    While most farmers get up at dawn to tend to their animals and land, William A. Bentley got up to photograph early morning dew dripping form leaves and hanging from the delicate strands of a spider web. But most of his life was spent photographing another form of moisture - snow. From the time Bentley was a young boy until his death, he was fascinated with snow. Although most of his friends and neighbors thought he was wasting time, he devoted most of his time and money to studying snowflakes. He experimented over and over again to find a way to photograph snowflakes before they melted or evaporated so that people could appreciate them. It is he who first took note of the snowflakes' unique hexagonal shape, as well as the fact that no two are the same - the reason for which he also discovered. This book of his life and work reads like a storybook, but tells the true story of a man who had a passion for his work. Additional facts about Bentley are shared in the margins to complete the picture of the man now known simply as "Snowflake Bentley." hc.

    Like all of Holling C. Holling's excellent books, readers will learn natural history almost effortlessly through an engaging story of a creature living and exploring its environment, and beautiful, detailed illustrations. Pagoo takes place in an ocean tidepool. Little Pagarus, or Pagoo, is a newly-hatched hermit crab, no larger than a pencil dot. His chances of survival are slim, but he has his instinct, affectionately titled "Old Pal" to guide him through the trials of growing up. Through the book he grows from a soft, translucent feathery being to a real hermit crab with claws and a shell home. Through it all, readers will come to learn about hermit crabs, other tide-pool and shallow ocean-dwellers, how they interact, and which predators little Pagoo needs to watch out for. With its intricate illustrations, personal story, and excellent blend of fact and fictional story, this book, first published in the '50's, surpasses any book on the subject I've seen today! - Jess

    A great book for the beginning stargazer! Authored by H.A. Rey (of Curious George fame), the book starts with the more well-known constellations, introducing and naming them and showing you the constellation both with, and without, lines connecting the stars. Also, it shows you the names of the bigger stars, and which constellation they are in. Quizzes are given after several constellations, and "sky views" show you the sky from the north and south at different times in the year. These pages give you plenty of practice picking out constellations on the page before you move outside for the real thing. It also helps you to find out exactly what months, days, and times a certain constellation will be visible. Stories about constellations are fun to read and make the constellations easy to remember. The sun and planets are also covered, and you learn what planets you can expect to see from earth, and when. Soon, you'll be ready for your own trip to outer space! - Megan

    The amazing story of Louis Braille and his untiring determination to enable the blind to read and write. Blinded in a freak accident, Louis had an intelligent and curious mind. Though his memory was tremendous and learning came easily to him, he was frustrated by not being able to read or write. At ten, he was enrolled at the Royal Institute of the Blind. He did well there, but was still discouraged by the cumbersome system of reading via embossed letters. This story tells how it came to pass that Louis, by the tender age of fifteen (!), had invented the first workable form of Braille. Though his system would not be perfected until five years later, this young man's invention would effectively open up the world for the blind. A very readable biography.
